Well it would be a good campground if there wasn't a overzealous commando officer on the loose writing everyone tickets for the slightest infractions. Officer A. Bolton is a bad image for campgrounds on the Gulfcoast. It's not that I don't agree with him doing his job, I'm happy he does, but it's the nature in how he does it. He's extremely rude, arrogant and seems to want to actually do you harm. You feel threatened by his presences. He's overly suspicious and seems to have the mentality that you're guilty until proven innocent and does it in a behavior that you will carry with you forever. He needs to be replaced. I will never return to any campgrounds or forests where I think he may be, I don't like the fear of wondering if I'm doing something minor wrong and he could pull up any second and try and search my belongings again. By the way, don't leave your toilet paper on the ground or you'll get a ticket for littering if he's around.
I say "Booooo!!" for A.Bolton and anyone that supports him!

Our friends and My family took our mortorhomes to Big Biloxi for the week-end. We took our children, had set up horesshous, had been throwing the frisby and footbell and were having a good time. We were a bit surprised that we were the only people in the campground. The campground is very heavely patrolled by both the sheriff dept and the dept of forrest services. Our experience turned bad when An officer for the forrest services came to our site. I have to agree with bradinfairhope from this point on. This officer may be doing his job but does so in a very unprofewsional manner. I have never been harrassed in such a fashion by anyone. We were corporative, he was beligerant, in front of our children. We have been to many campgrounds throughout the US and have never had an issue with the adult beverage, Alcohol. If someone is out of hand it has always been taken care of. For God sakes, the president of the US has had a beer on the front lawn of the white house and made national news. Our tax dollars are paying for these facilities the ban on Alcohol, a legal substance should be lifted. I suggest that this facility was empty because of the treament by federal officials such as A Bolton. Our fee was not 13 dollars as listed on the web site, it was 20 dollars. I think the Host, which we pay for basically have 16 acres to themselves to enjoy. What a job. I cannot recommend this site. What I can recommend is that in this fiscal crises ou nation is in that it be closed.

We disagree with bradinfairhope,about his review on Big Biloxi campground. Officer A. Bolton was doing his job!In Desoto National Forest there is no alcohol allowed. If you are caught drinking alcohol in the campground, the officer has a right to issue a ticket,because your breaking the park rules.To keep the park family friendly, the Officer was doing his job. We have camped here on our way to FL. for 4 years,the reason we camp here is because it's quiet, beautiful,and alcohol free.

Our group just had a horrible experience with a ranger at the Big Biloxi campground. Officer A. Bolton came into the park on Saturday evening and systematically swept throught the park looking through vehicles and tents and making all campers open their coolers looking for alcohol. Anyone caught with alcohol was made to pour it out and was given a $125 ticket. We were all treated like common criminals, and I have never seen such a look of hatred coming from a law enforcement officer before. Extremely unprofessional and abusive - even though we were extremely polite and cooperative. I will never step foot in Desoto National Forest again unless they do something about this guy. We wondered why this great-looking park was almost empty on a beautiful spring weekend. The camp host confirmed that the guy is a menace and will ticket campers for the most minor offenses - such as parking a car or staking a tent the least bit off the designated areas.
